Java 8 support for Sterling Integrator 5.2.4.2

We have company wide directive to upgrade current Java version to Java 8.

We want to check with you if current Sterling B2B Integrator 5.2.4.2
supports Java 8? The existing java version on servers where SI is
installed is 1.6.0_13 and the OS version is Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Server release 5.11 (Tikanga).

As per the documentation, we are seeing that Java 8 is not supported.

IBM JDK 1.7.0 (64 bit) build pxa6470sr5-20130619_01(SR5) or higher
within version 1.7.0 SRx (Sterling B2B Integrator 5.2.4.2 or higher)

1) Can you please suggest the way forward?
2) How long the enhancement request will take?
